Derb & Terpys Live Resin
The entire magic of live resin is in the name. The reason this particular concentrate is called ‘Live’ Resin is because it is prepared from fresh, live marijuana plants as opposed to dried or cured leaves and flowers.
Fresh flower buds and leaves are flash-frozen to help retain most of the cannabinoids as well as the terpenes and flavour of the original plant. This is why Live Resin is so much more flavourful and aromatic as compared to other kinds of concentrates.
The flash-freezing process locks in terpenes, which are basically the essential oils that give each cannabis strain it’s specific smell, and change the experience for each user.
Live resin can be found in a variety of different forms and colors, but it’s most distinctive characteristic will always be it’s fresh, strong, pungent smell which is a result of all those terpenes that have been effectively extracted from the live plant.
Live resin vs rosin
While most people (and even some dispensaries!) may use the terms Rosin and Resin interchangeably, as one of the top dispensaries in Canada, we believe it is our duty to educate our customers.
Resin and Rosin are two very distinct types of concentrate, each extracted using a very specific method and for a very specific purpose.
Live Resin is extracted using a flash-freezing method to help lock in terpenes along with cannabinoids to deliver an intense, flavourful and aromatic experience to the user.
On the other hand Rosin is extracted using high temperatures and pressure to create powerful concentrate products that resemble shatter in color and consistency. It is a solvent-less process that’s often seen as a replacement for shatter production. While both Live Resin and Rosin are incredibly potent and powerful, now you know that the two are quite different in not only color, composition, and extraction method, but also in the way they affect the user.
